Grateful for the opportunity to run the 2020 Boston Marathon for the 2nd time alongside the Xtra Mile team in support of the Special Olympics Massachusetts.
What really drives my interest and passion for this great cause specifically is my Auntie Pammy. Pam had Prader-Willi syndrome and was an avid, annual participant in the Cape Cod Special Olympics. Unfortunately, my Aunt Pam passed away in the spring of 2017 at age 50, due to complications related to her disability. I plan to continue her passion for Special Olympics and spreading her love through this experience. I will be running the Boston Marathon and raising money for this charity in honor of my Auntie Pam and all of the athletes that are able to compete in the Special Olympics. The Special Olympics brought her so much joy and helped her overlook her disabilities. Special Olympics was the absolute highlight of her life. She lived for this experience and would wear her medal around with pride for the following months.
I am elated to have the opportunity to support the Special Olympics while running Boston. This organization gives people of all ages the chance to be physically active, as well as something to be proud of. I want to make an impact in the joy and confidence of athletes like my Aunt Pam. The best part of watching Pam and the other athletes compete was giving them something to focus on and watching their disabilities vanish and their abilities shine as they played and competed in sports and events. My goal is to raise $10,000 for this amazing organization.
I greatly appreciate any and all donations! Thank you for being a part of my journey!
